Dear Mayor:

Established in 1974 and celebrating its 40th anniversary with NLC, the WIMG constituency group was formed to serve as a forum for communication and networking among women local elected officials and their colleagues within the NLC.  It strives to raise awareness about issues of concern to women, and it encourages women to seek public office in their communities.

  • Enhance your network with female elected officials and statewide leaders
  • Learn more about issues in special seminars that help to expand your skill sets
  • Strengthen your governance skills
  • Adapt community arts programs as best practices for your community
  • Attend the WIMG Board of Directors Meeting
  • Find solutions to challenging problems in your hometown

The schedule for the conference is available at www.nlc.org/build-skills-and-networks/education-and-training/event-calendar/2014-wimg-annual-conference.
